This image, taken from video footage, shows the immediate aftermath of a suicide bomb attack in the centre of the Afghan capital, Kabul.
The bomber rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into the gates of the Indian embassy, where people were queuing for visas at the time.
Officials say at least 40 people were killed and more than 140 injured in the attack that took place during the morning rush hour.
The emergency services were quickly on the scene and the injured were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment.
The attack is one of the deadliest in Kabul, after a relatively quiet period. India strongly condemned the "cowardly terrorists' attack".
There has been no claim of responsibility yet but the Taleban have vowed to step up attacks in the capital.
Police have cordoned off the area and an investigation is under way.
